Last weekend, the newly engaged Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their brood enjoyed a day on Galapagos Islands beach.
Brad Pitt could be spied in his wetsuit carrying the couple’s 7-year-old daughter, Zahara, into the water.
Like any other father, Brad Pitt elicited giggles and faux terror as he tilted Zahara back towards the water as a wave came crashing in.
Later, Zahara splashed about happily while her eight-year-old brother Pax did some snorkelling nearby.
Vivienne and Knox, both three years of age, stuck close to Angelina Jolie, who was the epitome of elegance in a wide-brimmed black hat and matching dress.
They watched as their mother struggled with a parasol, and later dug around in their sand messily – something Angelina Jolie wasn’t too elegant to get stuck into.
Four-year-old Shiloh – sporting her tomboy cut and jeans – did the same, and played quietly by her sister Vivienne when the younger sister was asleep.
Ten-year-old Maddox didn’t appear to with his family, perhaps he feels too grown-up now he’s heading towards the big 1-1.
Later the family enjoyed a boat ride together, and Angelina Jolie styled out a life-jacket.
The nautical theme continued as later, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt enjoyed a trip together and seemed to be locked in conversation.
Perhaps they were talking about Angelina Jolie’s visit to refugees in a village in Ecuador this weekend.
Or perhaps they were discussing plans for their forthcoming nuptials.
